Subject[PATCH 2/4] parisc: Replace __NR_Linux_syscalls macro with __NR_syscalls
__NR_Linux_syscalls macro holds the number of system call exist in
PARISC architecture. This macro is currently the part of uapi/asm/
unistd.h file. We have to change the value of __NR_Linux_syscalls,
if we add or delete a system call.

One of the patch in this patch series has a script which will generate
a uapi header based on syscall.tbl file. The syscall.tbl file contains
the number of system call information. So we have two option to update
__NR_Linux_syscalls value.

1. Update __NR_Linux_syscalls in uapi/asm/unistd.h manually by counting
the no.of system calls. No need to update NR_syscalls until we
either add a new system call or delete an existing system call.

2. We can keep this feature it above mentioned script, that'll
count the number of syscalls and keep it in a generated file.
In this case we don't need to explicitly update __NR_Linux_syscalls
in asm/unistd.h file.

The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I moved the
__NR_Linux_syscalls macro from uapi/asm/unistd.h to asm/unistd.h. The
macro name also changed form __NR_Linux_syscalls to __NR_syscalls for
making the name convention same across all architecture. While __NR_
syscalls isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of the
generated header to simplifies the implementation.
